Guam DOE: 1st Salary Adjustment in June 21 Check; But Retroactive Pay Won't Be in Checks Until July

Guam News - Guam News

Guam - The Guam Department of Education has informed its employees that they will see a salary increase in their June 21st pay checks.

The announcement follows Governor Calvo's decision Thursday to lift the freeze he imposed on all salary increases when he took office 2 and a half years ago.

In an email, Deputy Superintendent for Finance Taling Taitano advises employees that salaries "will be adjusted to the rate which includes your increment in that paycheck and going forward."

However, the retroactive pay will not be included in paychecks until July, at the earliest.

Taitano writes that "retroactive payments will be processed separately" and "the bulk of retroactive payments will be issued in the month of July."

READ the email to DOE Employees from Deputy Superintendent Taitano below:

Happy Friday! We received great news yesterday; the freeze on increments has been lifted retroactively.

The hardworking staff in Human Resources and Payroll have committed to adjusting all salaries based on increments payable by PPE June 15. This adjustment will be seen in your June 21 paycheck. These means your salary will be adjusted to the rate which includes your increment in that paycheck and going forward.

Retroactive payments will be processed separately. The bulk of retroactive payments will be issued in the month of July. Staff will be making the calculations to include the impact of any promotions, demotions, leave without pay, and leave sharing.

Please note that evaluations trigger increments and must be completed before increments are processed. Your supervisors have a list of any evaluations still outstanding.

Thank you for your contributions to the Department and for your continued patience. Enjoy your weekend!

Preparing Students for Life!
